FAQs

What does Dr. Walrath charge for cosmetic consultation?

Pure cosmetic consultation costs $100. This fee is discounted from your office or surgical procedure should you elect to proceed with a treatment. Consultation to evaluate true eyelid malposition and to determine if the patient meets insurance requirements requires clinical evaluation and occasionally special testing — these consultations are billed to insurance at the standard rate.

What insurances are accepted?

Lower eyelid surgery can be covered by insurance for very specific indications.

Medicare does not preauthorize procedures. Dr. Walrath is generally familiar with their criteria for covering procedures. Nevertheless, all patients about to undergo eyelid surgery who have Medicare are required to sign an advanced beneficiary notice, which states that Medicare does not guarantee payment and the patient may be billed by the government in the future.
